Abu Dhabi Unveils Plan to Enhance Road Safety Measures

The Joint Committee for Traffic Safety in Abu Dhabi recently unveiled a comprehensive plan to address the surge in traffic on Abu Dhabi’s roads. The plan focuses on enhancing road safety measures, primarily for two-wheeler traffic and related accidents, especially with the growing number of motorcycle delivery drivers.

New Regulations for Delivery Motorcyclists

The safety of all road users is of utmost importance, and the new regulations regarding delivery motorcyclists reflect that. By restricting their use of fast lanes and limiting them to specific lanes on roads with speed limits of 100 km/h and above, we can ensure that everyone on the road is as safe as possible. These rules also help to minimize traffic congestion, making for a smoother and more efficient commute for everyone.

Collaborative Efforts for a Safer Environment

Collaborative efforts are being made to improve traffic safety for delivery motorcyclists, resulting in a safer environment for those who provide goods and services on two wheels. This initiative demonstrates a commitment to the safety and well-being of all residents and is a significant step towards creating a safer and more secure environment for motorists and pedestrians alike.

Committee’s Decision Aligned with Framework to Regulate Traffic Flow

The committee’s decision is aligned with the framework to regulate traffic flow on roads and ensure the safety of all road users. The framework aims to reduce dangerous driving incidents, such as speeding on busy roads and highways, disregarding traffic signals, instructions, and road signs. The framework also addresses issues such as driving on the wrong side of the road, sudden lane changes, and failure to use turn signals properly.

Partner with delivery companies. Enhance driver qualification and training.

The committee has set up an initiative to develop partnerships with companies operating in the delivery sector by fine-tuning the level of qualification, education and providing continuous training for drivers and motorcyclists working in this sector. The plan also consists of establishing designated parking areas for delivery bikes, with more than 2,800 parking spots in Abu Dhabi and 200 in Al Ain.

Initiatives to Improve Delivery Bike Drivers’ Quality of Life

There will also be a number of initiatives during summer, aimed at improving the quality of life of delivery bike drivers and easing the hot atmosphere by providing them with permanent rest stops in carefully selected spots, which will be launched in Abu Dhabi as the first phase. The ITC has also provided parking permits for (6) buses designated as temporary rest stops for delivery drivers in Abu Dhabi City, Khalifa City, Mohamed bin Zayed City, Shakhbout City and the Shahama Area.

Plan Launched Following Local Studies on Causes of Traffic Accidents

The committee said the plan was launched following several local studies that looked into the causes of traffic accidents where drivers and bikers working in the delivery sector were involved. The plan will be carried out in conjunction with reviews of the current evaluation and training standards for drivers applying for a professional license in Abu Dhabi, in accordance with the best practices, leading to the launch of an integrated high-quality plan that is being applied at different stages.

New Speed Limits Implemented to Ensure Safer Traffic Flow

Abu Dhabi has recently implemented new speed limits to ensure safer and smoother traffic flow on its major roads. This move will help regulate the speed of vehicles and reduce the likelihood of accidents.
